September shall be a month to Remember

It has been long since I wrote, but thank God, this September I have remembered to write.

It is September, it is the month of remembrance

We are in the ninth month of the year. See how far God has brought you.

In a human life cycle, 9 months represents many things:,

  1. Fruitfulness – Meaning a woman carry’s a baby in the womb for nine months and by 9 months that baby is grown enough to face this world alone.
  2. New beginnings – As soon as the mother travails, the bouncing baby comes forth signifying a new journey a new life.
  3. Completion/Delivery – Means completion of carrying and laboring for the baby, it is time to deliver.

To me, this is a significant month spiritually, it is a month of remembrance, a month to travail and bring forth the dream/vision into accomplishment. It represents a new dispensation, another dimension and a higher level.

It is time to travail  and bring forth. Don’t fold your hands now and say I have tried for 9 months, it is time for you to push and push until you see the manifestation. This is possible not by your strength, only by his His grace. What I can assure you is that GRACE will deliver. This is not the month to throw in the towel, it is the month to travail. Scriptures says, as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth. That is my portion. and so is your portion in Jesus Name.


I decree that September  is a month to Remember. You must fully deliver!

Fill My Cup Lord

With my gaze, sharply on Him, ever calm and in control. Never moved by anything but full of compassion. I say to myself, I just want to be just like you Lord, my Father.

No doubt, at times in life, I am at ease, calm, swinging to the rhythm of my music, and perfectly so. Nothing getting me off guard, always ready to attack and conquer.

But you see there are times, when the above is not so. One battle after another, everything screaming for my attention, yet I am spread to the limits. Plans failing, promises not being fulfilled. Pressure from every side, bills staring at me, dreams dwindling off my arm reach.

So I turn, to Him, who knows the end from the beginning, He never changes, always constant. My heart desires His character, to be just like Him. I am filled with a longing and a thirst that pepsi cola won’t quench.

He looks at me with so much compassion that throws me into a moment of tears streaming down my cheeks. With my eyes on Him, I lift my cup to Him. See my cup is full of things that are draining me. The pressure of life, my dreams, my friends, my busy schedule, you name it, am sure you have the same story, if not now, there before.

He starts pouring Himself into me. His Character i.e Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, immediately, His calmness becomes my story, His peace becomes my testimony. It starts running over, I mean overflow reaching to all that come near me..

I cry out, Fill my Cup Lord, I lift it up to You…has become my secret!


They say that a change is as good as rest! That’s statement is 100% true!

A change ushers in freshness, new levels of energy, new ideas, new people to your social circle, and new depths in one’s character and so on.

What they don’t tell you is that, a change can be uncomfortable, can cause you to be nervous, and also make you unsure of yourself and the direction you are headed to. But at the end of the day, changes are inevitable. Change is permanent.

But if you wish to lead a fruitful and impactful life, changes are important. If you are not willing to change, then I doubt if you will ever grow.

Bearing the above in my mind, then you are able to embrace change with a positive attitude. It could be a change in your marriage, relationship/friendships, a certain way of doing things, moving from city to another and at times, a change can mean cutting off things that tend to draw you back.

Having gone through enough changes in my life, I have come to realize that, sooner or later, you learn to dance the new dance to suit your new change, and as a matter of fact, you enjoy the rhythm more since you know where you are coming from. A change ushers in a new level of maturity in one’s walk of life.

The first steps maybe rather uncomfortable, you may miss some steps too, but just keep at it, eventually, you will pick up the beat and groove smoothly into life as you enter another season of your life.

How well do you deal with change in any area of your life? Please share with the world.

I have come to learn that in life, I don’t loose, I either win or learn! Now that is real talk!

When you are a faith-filled person, many may label you a fanatic or delusional for not seeing the “reality”. Because faith demands seeing the possibilities out of many would call a dead situation or simply an impossible situation.

The truth is if your are Faith-filled, you happen not to have options like:

  • 1. Giving up.
  • 2. Living a lifeless life – I mean just an empty life
  • 3. Stop dreaming.
  • 4. Loose passion for what you know you are meant to do.
  • 5. Assume that there is no purpose God has deposited into your life for you know the purpose is in you.


Looking at the above -mentioned options, none appeals to me, for if I am Faith filled, I am wired to:

1. Never to give up.

2. Always speak life into my life situations

3. Always dream and dream even bigger dreams

4. Live passionately! Have a passion for anything you find yourself doing per time.

5. Live a life around the purpose God has placed over my life which is within my reach.


So I choose to press in and press on until I see the purpose God deposited into my life lived to the full measure.

Why don’t you join me and lets press in for more today! Life is so much fun this way.

Remember, whatever it is that you have been through in life, it will never be wasted!


Love you …SW.


What an awesome time I have been having in this holiday season. Had a wonderful Christmas carols on the 24th night…yes in Dubai, the first I have ever been part of! Truly I can say 2012 has been a year of new things for me..a year I have been able to close unpleasant doors and behold new doors sprung open before my very own eyes…Freshness to be precise!

My heart is expectant, and waiting on the Lord for 2013! Excitement is in the air..because I know 2013 must surpass 2012 according to Prov 4:18

Seated here on this relaxed afternoon, doing what I love to do – write, I want to prepare for 2013 consciously as I wait for the 31st Dec 2012 to hear what the Lord has for me! Did I say I am EXPECTANT! For I know my expectations shall not be cut off…!


1. Close/walk away  from anything that is not in God’s will for you.

I mean anything that is not of peace is not of God! I know it takes courage, but just take the first step and the rest will follow. You don’t need to walk into the new year with baggages upon baggages of 2012. Walk free!

2.Open your spirit for something new to be deposited in your life.

Just be open to receive newness. What you expect you experience, and I also know of a truth that expectation is the mother of manifestations.

3. Be specific and clear about your intentions for 2013.

If you want to have a close walk with God, put that down on a paper, if you want to loose weight, be specific on the weight you want to achieve, if you want to be a better spouse to your partner, be specific on which areas you want to improve as a husband/wife, this will help you to be accountable to yourself. Things don’t just happen, you make them..

Please share with us, how well we can get prepared for 2013!

2012 is almost over! How time flies when you are having fun.

Fresh memories of January are still here with me. I remember the many plans, the schedules and also the expectations I had when January was here with me, and now thinking we are in mid-December, counting them days and 2012 will be gone!

With nostalgia, I remember moments of the Lovely February, March, April, May, June, July August, September, October and November!

I remember the places I walked out of with anxiety, following the leading of the Lord, just for the Lord to usher me into “the place”, He had prepared for me to lie down in green pastures!

What is left with me is just but a list of the things the Lord has done for me.  From where I come from we call those things “BLESSINGS”. I am compelled to start counting them, but they are just too many to count! I can comfortably say that they are countless!, and all I can say is “ Father I thank you”, in Swahili we say, “ Asante Baba”! As I write this piece my mind is still stayed in that long list of blessings and I cannot help but whisper, “Father, Lord, I thank you!

Probably you are seated there reading this piece and thinking well, that could your story which seems to be too good to be true. Well, let me encourage you and tell you, yes, there might have been some storms here and there, but the truth of the matter is that the Lord brought me through those storms and I am still standing! Some disappointments here and there which later on the Lord turned them and made them major appointments!

Bottom line is those things which worked in my favor are too many compared to those which didn’t line up in my favor! Take you deeper, in the course of the year I encountered some small disappointment and my Man of God told me, “Nothing to worry about, because you are in God’s plan, it can only be for your good. Talk of slapping the disappointment in the face!

So please join me in thanking the Almighty God and say “Father, I thank you for 2012! 2013 can only get better, that I know!

God bless you!


The door bell goes off, your alarm goes off, your phone beeps, you baby calls you up crying from his/her room, your partner is calling you from another room! At that point you get confused and wonder who do you answer first, who can wait for you a few moments and who you really don’t need to answer at all.

Aren’t we living in this kind of environment,  day in day out so many things are screaming for our attention and at times you just stand in one place dazed and wondering how do you handle all these situations at the same time.

Unfortunately, it requires a stable mind to be able to know which area needs to be given your undivided attention and which area is just but a distraction. For you to be able to know what to do per time is just a matter of knowing what really is important.

Will with you just a few points on how you can stay focused.

 1.       Vision is vital.

Always go back and refresh your fundamental goals in life. When you know clearly what you are supposed to do/accomplish in your life, staying committed to it becomes easier. Living a life without knowing what you are really living for can make you run from pillar to post, or be swayed by any wind that comes along and you end up getting weary of life.

 2.       Understand your Vision.

Getting to know where you need to go or what you want to achieve is one thing but how to get it done is also is very important. When you understand your journey/vision, then distractions and whispers will not get your focus off you goals. Your vision must be bigger than you for it to be worth going for!

 3.       Get the necessary information and knowledge.

It is true nothing is new under the sun! The same journey you seek to walk, so many people have walked before you and what you just need to do is to sit down under their feet and be taught. Enroll yourself to learn more about your journey. If it is business you are doing, look for people who have excelled in that kind of business and learn from their exploits! The minute you stop learning you start dying. You will not perish for lack of knowledge.

 4.       Stay faith-filled.

For your journey to be great, it has to take God. Every great testimony in ones journey it is traced to ones walk of faith. If your journey does not take God, then it is not worth going for. The need to acknowledge God as the author and the finisher of your journey is core otherwise, your journey will be tiresome because you are relying on your own strength to succeed whereas you are supposed to depend only on God!

Ever felt like you are losing your focus on a journey/call/duty (Marriage, job, business venture, a call to Ministry), you set out to accomplish? Share with us how you have been able to pull yourself together and get your focus on!

 Stay focused to remain relevant!
